Noted for her astute perception of the human mind and its complexities, Ambai's writings take readers on a deep, unforeseen journey.
This anthology brings together both facets of a compelling persons - Ambai, the writer of fiction, and Dr C S Lakshmi, cultural anthropologist and critic - and places her vis-a-vis three writers she considers to be of great interest and influence: K Alagiriswamy, Perumal Murugan and Vela Ramamoorthy.
Ambai's writing is intricate, layered, moving between different narrative voices and times.
